CSEA’s President Allan Clark To Membership: Thanks For Being Useful Idiots


Here I go again pointing out the hypocrisy and ignorance of the C.S.E.A’s leadership.

CSEA’s President Allan Clark To Membership: Thanks For Being Useful Idiots

Well, of course he, and the board of directors won’t say this directly, but this
is exactly what happened in the past election. In his current “President’s
Message” he not so humbly states” Let me take this opportunity to thank each and
every member, and all of the friends and family you recruited, for the amazing
work you did on the recent election.” For one, he darn well ain’t thanking me,
and many of my co-workers in his home district. We understand that by passing
prop’s that raise taxes, we did nothing more than cut our pay. We see through
the greedy B.S. that the C.S.E.A’s leadership shovels. Allan states;” Prop 30
will raise about $ 6 billion for public schools and colleges.” Hey Allan, how do
you know that is the correct figure? Have you figured for the departure of some
of the tax base from California? Businesses and individuals are exiting the
state faster than the politicians, who were endorsed by the C.S.E.A, can steal
their earnings. All the while, the hard-working rank and file of not only our
union, but every working Californian, sees a decrease in their pay. Not a
mention of the increase in health care insurance, or the F.I.C.A. tax increase.
No, we get the same old tiresome bull shit from the C.S.E.A’s board: ” The way
we defeated Prop. 32 sent a clear message to the billionaire financiers, that
you can spend all the money you want (and they did) but you cannot defeat the
heart and soul of the middle class.”

Geez, Marx would be proud of this dribble! Really? Billionaires spending all
they want? Why not? The C.S.E.A. spends millions of dollars collected through
dues on to back their candidates, props, and bonds. And this statement by Allan
really shows the depth of not only his, but almost all of the C.S.E.A’s
leadership: “” We have identified who the biggest donors have been in this fight
and we will be working with our brothers and sisters in the labor movement to
attack them where it hurts the most-their profits.”

Yup, cut into a private companies’ profit enough, and they will leave the state,
close up shop, and cut employees. Which results in less tax dollars. This is
nothing more than ignorance and greed rearing its ugly head, and the face of
this beast: Is the leadership of the C.S.E.A.

If this type of idiocy continues, private sector workers will revolt at the
ballot box. And I think this will include the average, to far left leaning
liberal worker. Never forget, The C.S.E.A. has been successful over the past 25
years getting the candidates and props passed that have put us in this current
fiscal mess. So how do the people who created the mess, know some how have the
solutions? They don’t!
